    hey guys, posted here a few times with some issues. one of those weeks were all is happening at once. well this one has been for a while but thought i would ask now anyways. i adjusted my lowering valve to drop the plow faster a while ago. i like the speed but now my smarthitch is really slow when detaching from my truck. i hold the button and the motor is going like normal but the drop is very very slow. is this related to the control valve i adjusted? do i need to adjust a little more to ta slower drop the get the detaching speed back?

    thanks, jeff

    really don't have to power down the frame just power up enough to release the pins and just grab ahold of the light bar and it will pull down easy .little stiff when cold . some times when you power it down it can push oil out the breather on the tank .
